    You should upgrade to 8.1 for starters. Then go to Lenovo site and download latest drivers.

    About all I have left is a reset or refresh, no idea why it doesn't work. You do have it turned on, a hard switch button maybe. Gone to Networks and Sharing in Control panel and tried to manually add it?

    You do have to manually connect to a wireless network the first time. Type "connect to a network" in search and hit enter.
